Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
IMO its a LAME and DISGUSTING attempt to use Caroline's debilitating illmess to keep those damn carrots dangling and I AM OVER IT! Move the fuck on! Just when I think the spoilers couldn't be more ridiculous the PTB out do themselves. Great job! :sarcasm: You are full of of shit! No surprise though that Caroline would be used as a prop in suposedley "her own story". Shameful.
I'm confused as to why you think they are using Caroline's illness to 'dangle carrots'. It's not unusual for Caroline (or just about any other character) to be used to voice the upcoming direction/plot points. I don't see this having anything to do with her pseudo Alzheimers condition.

I do agree with Lysie, though - the comparisons of any of these couples to the popular super couples from back in the day does none of them any favors. If they want to create compelling couples that can stand up to the comparison against popular ones from the past they'd be far better off giving them some semblance of the type of writing those original couples got. THAT is why they were so popular.
Well the heart to heart with EJ for one "encouraging him to be a better man and asking him how Stefano is". Is not what Caroline has EVER done and I think we are supposed to believe that its do to her illness as sad as that is because they have been showing her as increasingly forgetful to prop another of Sami's pairings and she LOATHED EJ and the Dimeras, while a few days later she "reunites with Rafe" and has been shown to be supportive of SAFE. So thats where the "dangling carrots" comes in for me and to top it off the "caroline sympathyizes with Sami spoiler . I agree with Lysie that no characters or couples should be compared or that Caroline was NOT regretful for choosing Shawn and I hate the implication that she was. Bottomline the PTB just need to stop and instead of looking for parallels that don't work because of their lack of respect for adressing the history btwn these characters and the all around ignorant writing is why they just need to write for the characters instead of trying to look fot parallels that DON"T WORK IMO and that are only being used anyway to push an over done and beaten to death plot. As I said I am over it and they have accomplished me truely not caring who Sami is with because the writing is so contrived that its not even funny. The Sami that I loved is no more anyways. I don't buy any of this shit of her being "torn" and if that's what's supposed to be playing out the PTB FAILED big time because I don't see her loving EJ after everything and NEVER will no matter what.
Characters are written to have inconsistent behaviour all the time - I don't think Caroline's upcoming stuff really ties to her condition. Particularly when you consider she had EJ escort her to her seat during Shawn's funeral and has in the past given advice to both he and Sami in regard to their relationship - be that good or bad.
